The Boo Cruise Was Spooktacular!

The weather forecast was pretty bleak the week leading up to Halloween. Strong winds and heavy showers were predicted throughout the day and the morning of the holiday, those predictions were certainly realized to be correct!

As the morning wore on, the adverse weather conditions seemed to wane a bit. At around noon, the organizer’s mobile phones started lighting up with a volley of text messages confirming a Go / No Go decision… after a short period later the decision was “GO!”

The Goulet brothers, Capt Bruce and Dock Master Lonnie took to the water at 3:00pm as the showers were just starting to lighten up. By the time they had collected the Hill’s and met Princess Ros, Top Banana Bill and Shore Club Shutterbug Standridge the rain had stopped and the skies were actually starting to become brighter with a few light sun breaks beginning to appear!

To our surprise, the pleasant weather drew out an equally pleasing number of guests there to greet us around the lake! Costumed ‘kids’ of all ages were excited to meet with the elegant princess and receive tasty Halloween treats. Amazingly we all remained dry throughout the entire cruise and it wasn’t until the Goulets were docking the boat at home when the weather turned nasty again!

In addition to declaring the Boo Cruise a great success, we’d like to make a ‘teaser announcement’ to inform our readers that we are actively planning for a Christmas Caroling and Tree Lighting Event here on Angle Lake on Sunday, November 29th at approximately 6:00 PM. Specific details will be release soon via the ALSC blog.
